Invasive Species Removal & Foraging
Join The Art of Ecology for a summer morning’s workshop, geared towards getting you outside, exploring local habitats, and discovering a few ways that homeowners can take easy actions to do an invasive species removal on their property as well as how to use them in the kitchen!
What to Expect:
During this Invasive Species Removal & Foraging workshop, we shall be taking a walk through a property that is in the process of creating a wildlife habitat. As we walk along, identifying amazing summer wild-edibles on the property, we shall explore the benefits of native plants, and talk about the importance of reducing invasive species on our properties. During this walk, we shall examine invasive species removal techniques, preventing invasive seed dispersal during removal, and how to use some of the plants culinarily and medicinally! At the end, participants will get to taste some wild-edibles, created with locally foraged plants – many of which are invasive.
Located at the Brinker property: 261 Old New Road, Doylestown PA, 18901
What to bring: Invasive species removal tools (spades, trowel, pruning shears, etc…) will be provided, however please bring your own gardening gloves!
Admission: $35/pp. A portion of the proceeds is used to restore native habitats locally in Doylestown! Space is limited to only 15 participants, so be sure to save your space and register early!
These programs are designed for homeowners to learn more about ways to improve habitat for wildlife on their property, however the workshops are open for any age, 10+.
